Reconciliation Dialogue Workshop: Professional Learning Experience is a half-day workshop that will provide business and community leaders with the opportunity to engage in dialogue and reflect on the core values of reconciliation, allowing for a new generation of leaders who consciously and thoughtfully choose to live and work in reconciliation. Given the shared desire for a new way forward in Canada, reconciliation is critical in building an inclusive and just society.

Testimonial

“The transformation of our country depends on the work of reconciliation. Reconciliation that dares to face pain and prejudice with forgiveness and compassion. Reconciliation that enables truth telling and empathy, tears and hope for our children and our grandchildren, for families and communities. The workshop offered space that became sacred through story telling, sharing and openness. Here we were witnesses to hurt, surprize, guilt and shame and led towards possibility and opportunity. Thank you for all who attended and took part through voice and silence, through sorrow and smiles. Reconciliation is transformational.”

– Rev. Christine Rowe, St Mary’s Kerrisdale, Anglican Church
